Vorarlberg speaks – intensive staff: “You can feel tiredness”

During the second wave, you had mostly elderly patients, didn’t you?
The fact is that the risk of getting seriously ill with Covid-19 increases with age. In autumn there were many men and women over 70 years of age to be looked after. Two thirds of those who had to be ventilated died. This is a situation that the staff also has to deal with first. Not being able to do anything for a sick person and having to watch them die is an extreme emotional burden.
